Work begins on our new workshop. A heck of a lot of remedial work to do and then fully lining and insulating to keep our precious stock in tip top condition. The 70 year old Crittall windows and the crumbling render is a challenge but these old military buildings reveal stories with every layer you strip back. A fine place to be
Sam is Helmm's chief designer and inventor of our S-Desks and Laptop Stands.
Sam grew up working with wood in his Father's kitchen workshops but went on to study graphic design and after a few years working in London agencies set up his own graphic, exhibition and product design business in 2000. Gradually the business evolved into a digital agency but the calling to work with wood again was too strong and in 2013 Sam started designing furniture again in his spare time.
In 2015 his first concept prototypes were produced and now Sam is focussing on designing amazing furniture that improves the user's wellbeing and makes a design statement in any space.
Sam is husband to Kia, Helmm's marketing expert, and a devoted father. He likes to spend his spare time drawing, shooting video and photos and is a bit fanatical about bicycles.
